    The sophisticated AI and epic gun battles keeps the gameplay exciting even though there are a few poor level designs.

    It will push you to be a better gamer, but once complete it has little replay value.

    A veritable masterpiece almost worthy of the stout Italian himself.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The turn based strategy game was surprisingly fast paced-there is so little waiting that I almost felt like I was playing an RTS.

    My biggest complaint with SB is that there is no sort of story line to go with the game.

    The final battle isn’t a huge deal, and the ending isn’t spectacular, but it’s one hell of a ride to get there.

    Manages to provide some of the most challenge and fun I've had with a fighter in years.

    Although limited in its length, kill.switch manages to fit in innovative gameplay backed by intuitive, streamlined controls that are some of the best on the Playstation 2.

    While it appears to be ridiculous, I found it to be the most entertaining game I have played in a long while.
    • 73 Metascore

    Despite a general lack of interactivity in the game’s central areas and levels, the game contains plenty of gameplay across its five stylized locations.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    A giant leap ahead in the series offering players realistic terrain and well balanced units without the need to micromanage every aspect of the game system.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The game play is exciting and difficult at times but all in all it is an astounding chance to take on the role of a Veritech fighter pilot.

    It is the best RPG experience you can find on Xbox to date (sorry "Morrowind," you were impressive, but you were just not that much fun).

    A true delight, offering fast-paced hack and slash action gaming in the comfort of my living room. With a in-depth storyline, multiple quests, a hefty assortment of weapons and awesome graphics, Heroes is a solid title for those gamers who just love a good adventure.

    A must-have for Xbox Live subscribers, Counter Strike for Xbox far exceeds expectations with outstanding online multiplayer matches exuding intensity, competition, and pure fun.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Features slick controls, an outstanding presentation, and challenging play. Unfortunately, the game’s AI is a little too challenging to the point of being too difficult.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    While the improvements made to driving are welcome, as are the new courses and characters, the gameplay ultimately suffers due to poorly designed putting.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The lack of an epic, driving story prevents the game from achieving the greatness of other Final Fantasy games.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    The interface of this game has been stream lined and is quite intuitive. The functionality tends to be well organized and rides the line between useful and overcrowded quite well.
    • 70 Metascore

    I had a few bad experiences with this game but let me tell you this - as soon as I am done typing this, you guessed it - I'm Going In. I think you should too.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hours of enjoyment, but not overly original.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s solid and balanced, visually spectacular, offers a fairly easy though engaging single player campaign and skirmish mode, and is true (perhaps too true) to the common conventions of the genre.

    Rally Trophy claims to be the only Rally racing game based on historic automobiles… So What!?! Historic or not, they are still just tools used to get around the same old boring tracks.

    The first thing that drew me into the game was the amazingly beautiful world in which the game takes place.
    • 72 Metascore

    Although the game plays similarly to previous Red Storm games, The Sum of All Fears is much easier, and it lacks both preplanning and character advancement elements.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Adds some needed worldly interaction into The Sims, which is a welcome addition to the game.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The graphics look sharper, the creatures look and move more realistically, the items are impressive, and the quests seem to be a little deeper.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The new Interceptor transformations and customizable weapons system makes playing Spy Hunter 2 varied and entertaining; even more, the challenge offered by the game’s enemies and bosses ensures proper use of these new toys.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The combination of FPS and RTS works so well together in this title that you may wonder why no one has tried it before.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A nice return to a classic game scenario, but is far too short and fails to bring anything new to the series. While playing Blue Shift was fun, I would compare the experience to eating Chinese food. No sooner had I finished, than I wanted more.
